January News


Coming Up

I hope you are enjoying your holiday with family and friends.  And maybe even making into your sewing room once in a while!

In January, we have a full schedule of clubs and classes on offer.  Learn something new and meet some new people.  Open up your calendar and start planning some time for yourself in the new year!

We will be holding our UFO challenge again in January.  Bring in your unfinished project (crib size or larger) to the store in January and fill out a ballot.  You have up to three chances to win with each quilt entered.  An extra ballot is earned if the quilt is from a class taken at QC and another ballot is earned if more than half of the fabric was purchased at QC.  When you bring back the finished project (quilted and bound) by demo day in February, you have a chance to win a $50 gift card!

See you in 2020!

Demo Day

Our next Demo Day is Saturday, January 4th at 10:30 am.  Come early to grab a coffee and a treat!


Sit & Sew

Sit & Sew happens every Friday afternoon, 12:00 to 6:00.   Bring a friend and join us for some social sewing time.  The coffee is always on!



As always, don't forget to bring your own bag when you shop at QC.  This is an on-going initiative to reduce plastic in the world, and you have a chance each month to win a quilty prize! Chris S. was our winner in December, congratulations!

If you're ready to begin or improve your machine quilting skills, this class is for you.  This is a "hands on" approach to teaching machine quilting with lots of opportunities to both watch the stitches flow and try your hand at it too.  We'll practise on quilt sandwiches.  You'll learn how to add a motif such as a leaf or flower, basic stippling, straight lines and quilt stencil work.  Pick up one of our kits or a panel to show off your newly learned stitches.
